The constant development of laser technologies and the simultaneous search for the most effective and safest methods of skin renewal and rejuvenation have led to the invention of a truly revolutionary technology - fractional delivery of laser radiation.
The main advantage of this technology in comparison with its predecessors is the possibility of a deeper penetration of the laser under the skin and its uneven (fractional) effect on it, which significantly speeds up the healing process, reduces the risk of infection and reduces the likelihood of post-traumatic hyperpigmentation.
Constant improvements to fractional technology, in turn, have combined its significantly higher safety with the incredible efficiency of a carbon dioxide laser (CO2 laser). This is how the fractional CO2 laser appeared. Thanks to its creation, it became possible to predict the safety and effectiveness of the required treatment, which previously faced certain difficulties.
At present, the use of the latest fractional technologies (in particular, the Fraxel CO2 apparatus) allows for a short period of time to eliminate many skin defects that cause inconvenience and form various psychological complexes.
Thanks to the Fraxel apparatus and under the direct supervision of cosmetology specialists, now you also have the opportunity to improve the condition of your skin:
Fractional laser (CO2 fraxel) is more efficient than other laser processing methods for several reasons at once:
When exposed to a fractional laser on the skin, hundreds of microcoagulation treatment zones (MLZ) are formed - micro-wounds up to 3 mm deep and 100 microns in diameter, which are surrounded by healthy, intact tissue. It is due to healthy and intact skin that the MLZ regeneration process takes place - in a short time, the basal layer of the epidermis is restored. Further, the epidermis and dermis are restored - in place of the MLZ, areas of completely new, young and healthy skin are very quickly formed. No more than 20% of the skin is exposed during this procedure, which ensures its high safety. After several treatments, you will be impressed with the result!
Innovative cosmetology technology of fractional laser resurfacing (ablative and non-ablative) allows to achieve the effect of skin rejuvenation, close to that of the traditional laser ablation technique, while being significantly less traumatic. The key advantages of the technology are the significant reduction in the rehabilitation time and the number of side effects.
The process of directing a light source to affect a selected problem area of the skin for its superficial destruction is called selective photothermolysis ("thermolysis" - destruction by thermal exposure and "photo" - using a light source).
Unlike traditional selective photothermolysis, which covers continuous areas, laser fractional thermolysis acts in fragments, creating a fine dotted mesh on the surface of the treated skin area and leaving the areas outside the mesh intact. Thus, there is a fractional (fragmentary) destruction of the problem area with a laser. This allows the patient's skin to recover from the procedure much faster than with traditional continuous exposure.
Fractional thermolysis is a fragmentary destruction of problem areas of the skin by high-intensity laser exposure, which is converted into thermal energy.
Fractional laser resurfacing is ideal for effective treatment of skin problems and minimal recovery time.
Fractional laser resurfacing can significantly improve the condition of skin that is problematic from a dermatological or cosmetological point of view. Fractional laser attachments provide the most effective way to treat acne, reduce the appearance of scars, scars, wrinkles, remove age spots, chloasma, lighten and even tone, skin rejuvenation, face and neck tightening.
During the passage of the head, high-intensity laser radiation comes into contact with the skin and is converted into heat energy. The fractional laser acts fragmentarily, "burning" a fine mesh in the form of an ordered dot matrix on the skin surface. Each dot is formed by the application of one or more high-energy laser pulses. In depth, the effect of the laser can reach the dermal layer, forming cylindrical “mini-wells”. This causes the skin surface to shrink within minutes.
During the healing process, the production of new collagen in the deep layers is stimulated, the skin acquires firmness, firmness, smoothness and elasticity, looks more even and youthful.
Thus, fractional laser therapy is the most advanced cosmetological approach to skin resurfacing, a technology that uses a point effect, when treated areas are alternated with untreated ones. This ensures quick healing and reduces the risk of side effects.
Currently, the following fractional laser resurfacing techniques are used in hardware cosmetology.
A lightweight procedure that provides coagulation of the treated skin areas. Fractional non-ablative resurfacing does not require expensive preparation, but provides an excellent cosmetic effect with minimal redness and swelling.
Deep resurfacing of the skin, which makes it possible to control the depth of ablation and recovery time, depending on the power of the impact. The results are comparable to those of the traditional CO2 laser resurfacing technique, but the procedure is less painful, has fewer complications, and requires a shorter recovery period.
There are techniques for combining fractional ablative and non-ablative resurfacing in one procedure. The combined approach makes it possible to flexibly adjust the depth of penetration of the laser beam, apply coagulation or ablation, depending on the problems to be solved in different types of zones. The technique helps to maximize the effectiveness of treatment and rejuvenation, while minimizing the recovery period.
Fractional thermolysis uses advanced technology to emit a laser pulse that acts on the skin for a very short time. Patients feel only tingling and tingling, no bleeding.
The diameter of each laser pulse application point (ablation point) is less than 0. 1 mm. The pinpoint injury caused by the laser is very small and heals very quickly. Due to the fact that the main part of the treatment area remains unaffected, the patient can use decorative cosmetics within a few days after the procedure.
Treatment of the entire surface of the facial skin with a fractional laser can be carried out within 20-30 minutes. and does not require hospitalization and long break in work. Therefore, fractional thermolysis is the most effective treatment and skin rejuvenation program for busy people.
Compared to erbium laser resurfacing (2940 nm), fractional thermolysis has 2 advantages associated with a greater depth of impact (tissue stimulation) and a shorter treatment duration.
The use of fractional lasers gives less than 3% of side effects, which is significantly lower than the corresponding figures for ablative non-fractional lasers. Side effects include:
